Among the UKK wagons sits UKR 1431 (top right in this view), the only identifiable wagon not classed UKK and the only one with the older "Chopper" style coupler

Situated nearly 4 kilometres from the nearest railway at Papakura and some 20 kilometres from Westfield yard by road, the wagons are a long way from home
